Possible corrupt PortIndex file for rsync...

Sorry, I hate sounding like I'm answering my own questions, but I did a
selfupdate and I think that fixed the PortIndex issue...? My sources.conf
uses the default rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs/ports.tar so I
did a self update and that should fix the corruption issue, right?

So I guess the only question I have left is about the bashdb thing
mentioned previously.
